Why buy from World of Books
Our excellent value books literally don't cost the earth
"Memorably bittersweet... [with] brilliantly pitched dialogue and monologue. The final cataclysmic scene is masterly" * Guardian * "The way that this middle-aged man manages to inhabit a gang of girls with such gusto and conviction is one of the small miracles of contemporary fiction, and Warner has done it once again" -- Phil Baker * The Sunday Times * "This is a snarly group picaresque, a black comedy in which Gatwick airport is like Kafka's Castle in reverse... stifling, hilarious and indelible" -- Nora Chassler * Scottish Review of Books * "Warner navigates the comic, the philosophical and the socially acute like no other writer we have" * Independent * "Vigorous and uncannily convincing... Readers would be sorry if Warner were to have finished with these characters" * Daily Telegraph *
